Christopher Locke's 'Heartless Machine' modern fossils are genius. These art pieces are set up like remnants from an archaeological dig, only instead of dinosaur bones, these fossils are obsolete gadgets.

The nostalgia begins with a rotary telephone, then a cassette tape, PlayStation 2 controller, and record player. Christopher Locke even pairs each concrete artifact with a Latin name. Brilliant!
